Actually..I tried this and it did NOT work.
I changed the yearly service on the accounting tab to a cost of $20
Then I changed my yearly pay period to 12 months at 20% discount and I get=
an invoice total of $192.

I am baffled.
It works great on paper, but not in Emerald.

I need this to work without changing my prices....That is NOT an option.

hesitate to say distort reports, because they don't work correctly either.
